Washington - (Ponzi Mess): Convicted scammer Bernard Madoff is hoping for a get-out-of-jail-quick card amid reports of a White House rescue for Egypt.
A new Supreme Court appeal says his ponzi scam is entirely kosher when compared to Egyptian 'Phoney Pharaoh' Hosni Mubarak's accumulation of a mystery $20 billion nest egg.
The beleaguered Egyptian dictator apparently acquired a personal enrichment plan from Ronald Reagan Vice President George Bush Senior.
The same business model saw Bernard Madoff jailed for 150 years after an outcry by the Mossad Pension Fund which took a $900 million tumble in the December 2008 collapse.
Based loosely on an economic model first put forward by Henry Kissinger the Mubarak Money Magnet simple siphoned off scores of billions from international development agencies' handouts.
"But, hell, it kept the peace between Egypt and Israel!" Kissinger once famously said - before turning down a character witness statement for Madoff during his own hour of need.
Mrs Mubarak's golf bullion holdings now exceed $50 million.
